It’s a great time of year to be a football fan. Our teams are assembling their rosters, and training camp is just around the corner. Specifically, the first open workout for fans to attend up at SUNY Cortland is two weeks from today. To quote a certain former linebacker, “Can’t wait!”
What makes this time of year so exciting? We are all 0-0. I know that sounds silly, but it’s true. Think about it, all of the experts can talk about how bad our team is going to be. Ray Lucas on “Jets Nation”, said the other night that we will win 2-4 games, tops. Well, we don’t have to think about that at this point. Why? We are all even.
It’s a great time of discovery for the team as well. We are learning what our team is going to look like. Who is going to make the team? Will there be any surprise cuts? How about surprise players that are going to make the team? It akes this time of year exciting.
This time of year, we get to get up close and personal with the players, thanks to the open workouts. Is there any other time that we can get this close to the team? Nope.
2 weeks from today. Football is almost here…”Can’t wait!”
